ANASTASIA - PIANIST
Filigree, spirited, extraordinarily musical - these and even more words describe the young virtuoso's playing style, if music could be so easily grasped
Music is the language of the soul, which connects people all over the world without words and touches them at the deepest levels" Anastasia Huppmann
Born in Russia, Anastasia Huppmann discovered her love for music very early. At the age of five, she started playing the piano. Soon after, the music school board recognised her musical talent and Anastasia began receiving individual lessons for gifted children in piano, composition and music theory. At the age of seven she appeared playing her own music-compositions live on TV and won her first piano competition. She completed her piano studies at the State Conservatory in Rostov-on-Don (Russia) and at the Vienna Conservatory (Austria), both of which she completed with distinction. Anastasia continued her education at the Academy of Music in Hannover (Germany). She participated in the solo classes of Prof. Karl- Heinz Kaemmerling until his sudden death.
Anastasia won more than 20 piano competitions: among others the “XXI Century competition” in Kiev (Ukraine), the “Professor Dichler competition” in Vienna (Austria), the “Bluethner special prize” in Vienna (Austria) , the “Osaka international Piano Competition” in Osaka (Japan), the International Concorso Pianistico “Vietri sul Mare – Costa Amalfitana” and the Premio di esecuzione Pianistica International “Antonio Napolitano” Citta di Salerno (Italy), the International Piano Competition “Grand Prix International, Jeunes Talents" in Lion (France).
Today, the piano artist deals with classical solo concerts and orchestral music. Her music style has stood the test of time and brings back music from the good old days. She performs heartwarming tunes to infatuate listeners’ hearts over and over again. This explains why her concerts attract a massive following of fans. She has had solo performances in the USA, China, Japan, Austria, Germany, France, Ukraine, Russia, Poland, Spain, Italy and others.
